Today’s Tag Thursday is all about the world of the Shadowhunters. Why? First of all, because Lady Midnight was just released, the first part in a brand new book series by Cassandra Clare that is set in the shadowhunter world.

TV Review: Shadowhunters Premiere

Shadowhunters

Though it was a bit cringe-worthy at times, I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next episodes.
